It is the Presidents Cup golf this week which is the duel between the USA and the Rest of The World (minus Europe) in a knock-off of the Ryder Cup. So far, since the inception of the tournament in 1994, it has been nowhere as competitive as Ryder Cup action, with the USA having won eight of the ten editions of the tournament, drawing one and losing the other one. So a clear dominance and the last time the International team won was back in 1998 and the USA are currently on a five match winning streak at the event.

It’s not too likely to change this time around as US captain Jay Haas has such a powerful side at his disposal, led by FedExCup champion Jordan Spieth. Joining him are the likes of Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson in a powerful line up. All of the USA team are in the world’s top 30 while the average ranking of the International team is around 33. So a clear division in class here really.

The International team to have some star attractions, but the depth of their squad doesn’t’ come close to that of the USA. Jason Day is the big name in the International field with his astounding form over the back end of the season. He will have support from Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott notably. They have a best four or five players in the squad and it’s hard to see the rest picking up too many points between them.

The last five meetings have been won by the USA by a margin of at least three points and the latest edition of the Presidents Cup Golf betting out in South Korea really isn’t likely to offer anything different. The USA are 4/9 outright favourites with Stan James while the International team is a 7/4 shot and the draw a 12/1 poke.

The Top American market is led by Jordan Spieth at a 4/1 quote while Jason Day, not too surprisingly is the same price to finish as the Top International. Snaffle up some insurance on a Golf 2/3 ball accumulator with online betting site Stan James. Place an acca of 4 or more selections and if just one of those selections lets you down then Stan James will refund your lost stake as a free bet up to £25.

Well the Scots know that they need to be just that little more cautious about their opener in the tournament. They, along with the rest of the world, will have seen Japan pull off the biggest shock in world rugby as they took down South Africa in their Pool B victory over South Africa. It was a pacy, spirited performance from the Japanese as they scored an 84th minute winning touchdown to pull off the 32-34 victory.

It was a result which really set the tournament alight and now Scotland are next in the firing line for Japan at Kingsholm, Gloucester. The Scots do get Stuart Hogg into the starting lineup and while they will go into the match as strong 1/8 favourites at online betting site Stan James they will have to tread carefully against the Japanese who like to play a very high-tempo game that the Scots will need to take the sting out of. The Asian nation will also be running high on confidence after claiming a big scalp.

From their four previous matches against Japan, Scotland have triumphed in all of them, two of them coming in previous World Cup Pool groups. The most recent clash came at Murrayfield in November 2013 with the Scots running out big 42-17 winners. Scotland are one place behind Japan in the official world rankings at the moment and they have won just two of their last nine international matches played.

Japan, who are trading as 33/1 shots to beat the Scots have won nine of their last ten games, including victories over South Africa, Italy and Samoa in that sequence. So definitely a side on the rise but they have averaged just 11 points per game from their previous meetings with Scotland while the Scottish have returned an average of 55 points per game against the Japanese.

While the Japanese are likely to have their tails up and continue to put in a lot of enthusiasm, hard work and run the game at speed, Scotland will at least have had the advantage of seeing what they did against South Africa and try to negate it. Online betting site Stan James have a Scotland -16 handicap up at a price of 10/11 for the match and the bookmaker also offer money back as a free bet if your first try scorer in the match doesn’t open the scoring but does net the second of the game.

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Preview

So changes needed and they will be looking for an improvement in performance on the road in the Premier League after losing at Swansea in their last road game. Wins have been hard to come by for Southampton, but don’t lose that many at St Mary’s.

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Saints tend to do a lot of things right but they just can’t seem to get the deserved rewards for what they do. They have only lost one league game so far this season, but then they have only managed to pick up the one victory. They haven’t looked all that powerful up front but they are a decent home side having won five and lost just one of their last seven league matches at St Mary’s. But Ronald Koeman’s men have now only managed to claim two victories in their last eleven Premier League matches played. It’s not through a lack of quality, they just can’t seem to click into a higher winning gear. Still, they should give United a good game and they won the last meeting with the Red Devils claiming a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

You have to look for Graziano Pelle for Southampton goals because they seem to struggle if he’s not on his game. He is a good home-goalscoring threat and is running at a quote of 9/4 in the Stan James anytime goalscorer market, with Jay Rodriguez, yet to net this season in the top flight behind at 11/4. The Saints have only managed the five goals in total this season, a really poor return given the quality they have. They conceded five goals in their opening two matches of the season, but have since gone on to banks themselves three clean sheets in a row, which is more of the Southampton we know. They are 9/4 to shut out United on Sunday, but both teams have scored in five of the last six clashes between these two and three of the last four meetings at St Mary’s have gone over 2.5 goals.

So the Red Devils haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven league games against Southampton. Keeper David De Gea made his first start of the season last weekend and conceded a goal, making it seven matches in a row in the top fight without a clean sheet from him. When United have scored first in Premier League meetings with Southampton they have gone on to win fifteen of sixteen (D1). United have only won exactly one third of their away games in the top flight under Louis van Gaal (7 of 21) and lost their last road trip 2-1 at Swansea. All meetings between Van Gaal and Ronald Koeman have ended in a win for the away manager. Anthony Martial is a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market, the same mark as Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay.

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 11/8, Southampton 2/1, Draw 9/4

Southampton v Manchester United Predictions

The Saints don’t look as if they have the goals to really trouble Manchester United all that much, but their defence has clicked well now and don’t look like giving up too much against a United side which is hit and miss on the road. The better attacking options rest with United and it could just be worth backing an away win because of that.

Can England win the Rugby World Cup for the second time in their history? No rugby fan will ever forget that momentous day in 2003 when Jonny Wilson dropkicked England to success in the enduring final against Australia. They made it back to the final in 2007 but were beaten out by South Africa and then completed a poor campaign in 2011 when they were beaten in the quarter finals by France.

Should host nation England win the 2015 Rugby World Cup in their own back yard this year, then online betting site Stan James will issue refunds on losing bets on the outright winner market.

England go as 4/1 second favourites in the outright market, trailing only the mighty New Zealand who are heavy 5/4 favourites to lift the title. The English do have to do battle with Australia and Wales in Pool A so there is some hard work going to be needed to be put in before they even get to the knockout stages.

2015 Rugby World Cup Outright Winner Odds

New Zealand 6/5, England 4/1, South Africa 6/1, Australia 15/2, Ireland 9/1, France 16/1, Wales 25/1, 66/1 bar

Australia beat New Zealand to the punch in the 2015 Rugby Championship and are 15/2 to win the 2015 World Cup, South Africa will be a big danger floating around in the draw at a 6/1 quote, while Ireland could well mount a positive challenge at 9/1. The unpredictable France are 16/1 to land the win, with Wales at 25/1 and everyone else 66/1 and out.

Get money back as a free bet up to £25 at Stan James on all losing outright bets if England win the World Cup.

In order to qualify you must place an ante-post single bet of £5 or more on the Rugby World Cup – Outright Betting market before 8pm on Friday, September 18th. The free bet will be based on your first single bet placed. The minimum free bet award is £5 and the maximum £25.

The Rugby World Cup is finally here and all of the action starts on Friday night when host nation England face Fiji. England’s Jonathan Joseph finished the 2015 RBS Six Nations as top try scorer, so will he be able to get off to a flyer in the tournament? Joseph is 8/1 with Stan James to be the First Tryscorer against Fiji.

Will New Zealand’s Julian Savea, the outright favourite to finish the tournament as top tryscorer cross the line in the All Blacks’ opener against Argentina. Will we see Wales’ George North at his very best when Wales take on Uruguay in their opener?

Stan James are running a First Tryscorer offer throughout the entire 2015 Rugby World tournament, enabling you to get money back as cash throughout the tournament if your First Tryscorer selection scores second instead.

2015 Rugby World Cup Outright Winner Odds

New Zealand 6/5, England 4/1, South Africa 6/1, Australia 15/2, Ireland 9/1, France 16/1, Wales 25/1, 66/1 bar

So if you back a player in the market and they don’t touch down first but land the second try of the game, at least you will pick up some consolation. The money back that you get in the offer will be based as a 100% match to your FIRST qualifying bet played. Open a new account with Stan James and earn a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus.

Stan James are running as second Rugby World Cup promotion too, as they are offering money back on the outright winner market if it is host nation England who lift the title!

Premier League Betting

Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Preview

It is seven points on the board for both Liverpool and Man Utd this season and both have clearly shown that there is room for improvement if they are serious about mounting a Premier League title challenge. This is Saturday evening’s big kick off and will Liverpool be able to frustrate United like they did Arsenal when they visited the Emirates? Like Liverpool, United are now winless in two and with a tough run of games coming up, they will be looking to build up some kind of confidence and momentum.

Get a free bet at Stan James if either Wayne Rooney or Christian Benteke scores first in the game. You will get money back as a free bet up to £25 on all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer and correct score bets if either Rooney or Benteke opens the scoring in the match. You can bank acca insurance on 5+ folds as well with Stan James and earn a free £10 bet as well when you open an account with them!

Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Tips

So after both opened with back to back wins, a draw and then a defeat followed for each, so Liverpool and United have taken exactly the same path so far. United are favourites in this one though as they have won five of their last seven Premier League clashes with the Reds (L2) but the goals haven’t been flowing for them yet. They have mustered up just the three goals all season and one of those were an own goal by Spurs in their favour. They went into the international break on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Swansea after taking the lead in the game, and with a 0-0 home draw against Newcastle preceding that, there’s no real sign of them clicking.

Both of United’s wins this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline and you can back a Manchester United 1-0 correct score for a price of 6/1 with online betting site Stan James. Wayne Rooney is still looking for his first league goal of the season despite his heroics for England. He is trading at a 7/4 quote to snap his ten match Premier League goalless drought although he only has five goals in 22 games against Liverpool. New signing Anthony Martial is a 2/1 quote alongside Memphis Depay. If David de Gea does come back it may not be a great omen for United as he hasn’t kept a clean sheet in any of his last seven Premier League appearances.

Only once in their last five meetings between these two (all competitions) has both teams scored in a match. That was in United’s 2-1 win at Anfield last season. So a ‘no’ option on both teams to score may have appeal at 4/5 especially considering that Liverpool have only managed the two league goals this season. Christian Benteke did get one of those and he is 9/4 anytime goalscorer quote. The Reds, who were hammered 3-0 at Anfield by West Ham before the international break have won just one of their last seven away games in the top flight and that was their 1-0 win at Stoke on the opening weekend of the season.

They played well to earn a 0-0 draw at Arsenal and their three clean sheets in four does suggest they were having a real off day against West Ham. But Liverpool have lost seven of their last eight at Old Trafford in all competitions and they may not be flowing enough up front to really have a solid chance at the three points in this one. Given how poor both of these have been in front of goal this term shoot under 2.5 goals for a price of 7/10 with online betting site Stan James. Liverpool would probably be happy enough with a draw in this one.

Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Odds

Manchester United 17/20, Draw 5/2, Liverpool 7/2

Manchester United v Liverpool Predictions

Tough one to call because of the lack of goals by both of these. So that would probably just leave you siding more with the home side in this one because at least they do have more attacking options and a great home record going against the Reds. A low scoring home win looks probable.

Where will the goals be happening this weekend in the Premier League? There are some fixtures which look as if they will return a few goals, such as Chelsea’s home match against Crystal Palace and Manchester City’s hosting of Watford at the Etihad.

The Tottenham and Everton clash at White Hart Lane has scoring potential as well, which Norwich may be able to heap some more misery on Southampton as they visit St Mary’s, three of the last four clashes there between them flying over the 2.5 goals mark. It’s an interesting line-up of fixtures and if you were considering an over/under 2.5 goals acca the head to Stan James for it.

Place a £5 accumulator (4+ selections) on this weekend’s Premier League Under/Over 2.5 Goals market and Stan James will give you a £5 Free Bet – whether you win or lose.

For example A £5 acca on over 2.5 goals in the following games returns £83 and a £5 free bet: Newcastle v Arsenal, Bournemouth v Leicester, Man City v Watford, Tottenham v Everton and Stoke v WBA.

So there is a potential big payout on this Bet £5, get a £5 free bet offer from Stan James! This applies to qualifying bets of an accumulator (minimum of four selections) of £5 (cash) placed before 15.00 Saturday 29th August 2015 (BST) on the Under/Over 2.5 Goals market.

W3 L1 – that is the record that West Brom have put up in their last four home matches against Chelsea in the Premier League. The Blues went to the Hawthorns last season and were pounded 3-0 thanks largely in part to an inspired performance by Saido Berahino for the Baggies, who netted a brace in the game. That result remains the joint-heaviest defeat for Chelsea in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho.

Now with just a point on the board so far this season from their opening two games, and with their defence having been breached five times already, Chelsea head back to the Hawthorns on Sunday with some pressure mounting on them. No-one had more Premier League away wins than Chelsea did last season and now with such big questions being asked of them in their title defence, will they be able to kick start their season into gear?

The Baggies have yet to score this season and they were torn apart at the Hawthorns by Manchester in their opening match of the new season. So the Blues go as 8/13 favourites to put the three points in the bag, while West Brom are 11/2 to take a win and the draw is at 3/1.

However if you go and shop around at Stan James and find yourself a 2/1 or bigger winner on any market, then Stan James will match your stake with a free bet bonus (up to the maximum of £25).

Given the Baggies’ good home record against the Blues they at they have going, the long price on West Brom to win would be huge so that could be a way to go. Or perhaps Diego Costa to score first in the match would fall into the promotion while Chelsea to win to nil would also qualify for the free matched bet!

So your winning just got even better with Stan James. Get a 100% matched free bet of up to £25 if you place a winning single pre-event bet at 2/1 (3.00) or greater on Sunday’s (23/08/2015) Premier League match between West Brom v Chelsea (pre-match single bets only).

There will probably be some drama from the Etihad on Sunday afternoon as Manchester City take on Chelsea in the weekend’s big match. After Chelsea stuttered to a 2-2 home draw against Swansea on the opening day of the season while City banked an impressive 3-0 away win at West Brom, Sunday’s fixture at the Etihad sees a bit of pressure on Chelsea.

The Blues won’t want to lose this one and fall five points behind the Citizens even though it is so early in the season. City won’t want to lose and find themselves a point behind the Blues. So interesting stuff and a draw may not be too far from the picture given the 1-1 draws that the two sides played out last season. Chelsea will probably go and play defensively and hope for counter attacks, as is their style in big games like this under Jose Mourinho.

Stan James are offering money back as a free bet to the value of £25 on all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer and Correct Score bets if Sergio Aguero or Diego Costa scores first in the match. Aguero has netted nine Premier League goals in his last eight appearances. Impressive stuff.

Stan James also run accumulator insurance on all 5+ acca’s containing at least one Premier League selection. If just one leg of such a wager lets you down then you will be returned a free £25 bet as a consolation. Open a new account with Stan James and you can earn yourself a free £10 bet as well!
